Computer Aided Engineering Option (CAD.CAE.AAS)
This program option provides students instruction in
engineering-related design with emphasis on concepts and applications of
Computer Aided Engineering Technology. CAE covers subjects such
as: the applications and principles of kinematics in engineering-related
design; concepts and techniques of finite element modeling for stress
analysis and nondestructive testing; techniques and applications of solid
modeling for design and manufacturing; and CAD techniques of numerical
control tool path generation for manufacturing. Reverse
engineering and rapid prototyping further enhance the learning experience of
students in this program. CAD applications are used in numerous
industries such as: animation, product design, urban planning, interior
design, medical applications, manufacturing and architecture.
Upon completion of this associate degree or certificate, graduates will be
prepared for employment in engineering, manufacturing and design analysis
industries or may transfer to a four-year institution.
P20 ARTICULATION STUDENTS: Students who have completed
P20 articulation programs may apply for advanced placement. Detailed
